I completed my Masters in English (Public Texts) from Trent University in January 2020. During my graduate studies, my research in feminist zines ultimately led to the the creation of ang(st) zine. Trent U has posted a profile on me and my research on ang(st). Read it here!
Aishwarya is the creator and editor-in-chief of ang(st): the feminist body zine.
ang(st) was founded in 2019 as a part of her graduate research at Trent University, Canada. It explores the physicality of feminism – our relationships with our bodies, with society, and with other bodies. Through a series of themes it aims to showcase how we interact with our bodies differently, and have diverse experiences and concerns. Most importantly, ang(st) is a space for marginalized voices and identities: bodies that are considered outside the realm of ‘normal’ and ‘able’.
ang(st) is published twice a year with short prose, poetry, and visual art pieces.
